Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens before? Ah, shaddup and listen to my news. If this keeps up, VIKINGS, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them. A drop of 4 in the rankings? I can just hear all the boasts coming in THE ABYSMALS' next personal ads. Their first turn they went 4-1-3. Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see THIAOO TRIGG win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly. Tsk, tsk, ICARUS beat BAYFRONT BETTY and BAYFRONT BETTY lost 4 points. You're breakin' my heart. And if variety is the spice of life, KOLACT may be getting bland, as SIR CUMFERENCE stays top dog in the city. Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights? Skill? Ha! Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys. Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals. I volunteer for KOLACT's morgue. More variety. We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later? What does the KOLACT arena have in common with the inns? It's just as comfortable to sleep in either place. Ha ha ha ha! Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice! So nyaaah!

It's got Bite-Back. -- Buffalo Bob Icarus -- And that's all she wrote. My inconsistencies and weaknesses have been exploited beyond what a tolerable manager would consider his breaking point. And since "tolerable" is giving Still the benefit of the doubt, I'm outta here. -- Galopede Persistent Beggar -- I understand Zap's got a few choice words for you, Beggar. -- Bayfront Betty Persistent Beggar -- Zap! Zam! Zowey! Don't beg, Beggar. You've been persistently zapped into the next plane of existence by the fearsome Zapette. (that's me) -- Zapette Zapette -- Nicely done. -- Bayfront Sir Cumference -- Well! You got around me that time, and good work, too. I salute your efforts, and my thanks for the skills. -- Lirvel Moorn P.S. If you care to drop by our place tomorrow, we're having a big fish fry. The more the merrier (so they say, I say, the more the more). Hmm, I don't know about "venomous," but the Concubine agreed to introduce me to her manicurist. This is going to be great! I want gold lacquer stick-on nails, maybe with little paintings on them. It will be so cool! -- Persea Quell Quiznos -- Tcha! That would be embarrassing if you weren't so tall. I do like a tall man. (melting look, well, at least a softening look) Would you care to come to our fish fry tomorrow? -- Cynica Buffalo Bob -- No WAY we're going to serve "buffalo wings" at the fish fry tomorrow! "Fish wings"? I don't think so. Did YOU ever see a fish with wings? You need to talk to Lirvy about this, she's the one in charge. -- Nestor Ordh Buffalo Bob -- We might do something with shellfish, if we could get any big enough to see. -- Lirvel Moorn P.S. AND train them to spread their wings once they've been cooked, because there is NO way I'm going to offer, much less EAT, raw fish. Galopede -- (various rude comments suppressed in the interest of intra-arena amity) -- Icarus P.S. (curled lip of scorn) Bayfront -- What, you would have me turn a blind eye when you are DOOMED by your heterodox beliefs and convictions? I am not so cold-hearted! -- Danno, sort-of- Convicted Thief 9 July 2007 I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately. If there are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good. So if you send me a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I have not gotten it (yet). If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com. If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos. We are working on this problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta P.S. If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line. 27 July 2007 ************************************* ************************************* ** STORMCROWE SLAUGHTERHOUSE II ** ************************************* ************************************* Years have passed since the last Slaughterhouse, but the season is right for a return to STORMCROWE!
